What?
Just so many articles out there that did not help me. This article is how I finally did mine.

Why?
I had paid for some apps on my old phone and realized that if I didn't do a "restore", then I would have to install and pay for them all again. My purchased music was in the cloud so those could be re-downloaded on to the new phone (not fun).

The Apple documentation iOS: Transferring information from your current iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to a new device was as useful as a Microsoft KnowledgeBase article. In that, it restored all my photos and the default Apple apps, but missed out all my other apps (and audio).

How?
Note that the restore can be done when the new phone prompts you to set it up but you could do the below again at anytime (as I discovered). The steps below apply after having gone through the process of setting up the phone and finishing on the "Get Started" (including Touch ID).

Event 1

A friend reported her phone was constantly being drained, wasn't lasting the day on a full charge and knew how to close apps running in the background (double-click "home" button and hold down app until red minus buttons appear, tap red button)...

I wouldn't usually take notice but I think this is a brilliant example where trying to fix the problem is the very cause of the problem in the first place:


The empty arrow next to the battery indicator tells you that location services is enabled but it is attached to a reminder that needs to constantly monitor your whereabouts in order to "remind you".

The reminder here was to charge the phone but it was the reminder which would drain a full charge in less than a day.
